Congrats on completing Champions!
You have much fun in store as the Krynn games just got better and better.
To me the encounter design and tactical combat is what I really love about the Gold Box games.
Champions was a good game, but all the evil elves really annoyed me, and is in direct contradiction to what Weiss&Hickman says about them in the Dragonlance novels. "Elvish Killer"? <shudder>
Death Knights of Krynn is rather short, but it is the most unlinear of all the GB games, with lots of interesting places to explore.
Dark Queen of Krynn is a tour-de-force of one challenging and varied fixed (not random) encounter after the other, and has some of the IMO best designed areas of the GB games.
